Once the observation has been submitted the status changes to SUBMITTED. The block will be reviewed by the science operations team. They will check overheads, calibration strategy, LST range and constraints. If changes are needed the status will change to DECLINED and the owner of the block will be contacted by the team. The block can then be adjusted and resubmitted.

When the science operations team has approved the schedule block the status will change to ACCEPTED.

Once accepted the observation is added to the observing queue. MeerKAT does not generate its observing schedule long in advance. The block will be scheduled when the constraints are met (, night time and baseline requirements) and if it fits in with the schedule.
